Breastfeeding

It's important that you make the right choice for you and your baby about whether to breastfeed or bottle feed. You may or may not choose to breastfeed. Many things will affect your decision. It is possible to breastfeed with many medications used to treat mental health problems, but there are some medications which are not recommended in breastfeeding. It's important to discuss this with your doctor.

Some women find breastfeeding easier than others. It really helps to get support from your midwife and health visitor. There's lots of information and support from the organisations listed below:
